Data ethics of the future and its impact on innovation
Data has become central to the way in which we live and work. Technology companies of the future will be founded on the use and exploitation of data but also judged on their legal and ethical use of that data.
We will look at the current legal and ethical framework for data ethics; consider how this is likely to evolve in the future and what technology companies should be doing now to get ahead of the curve.
How is technology influencing the design of our towns, cities and places of the future and how can we creatively engage communities in place-based design? Why do we need to reboot ‘The Digital City’ and what are the implications for minoritised communities?
Join an engaging panel comprising Fellows from the Bristol+Bath Creative R+D programme and beyond in exploring the future of digital placemaking. Hear some of the innovative and varied conceptual approaches and real-life applications of plce-based technologies – from social dreaming to digital twins – in the development of the future public realm.
Be Prepared to Forget Everything You Know About Innovation!
Innovation will only succeed if you embed it in your culture. It cannot be a bolt-on. We aim to debunk some of the myths surrounding what innovation is and how it’s achieved.
In this thought-provoking session, we will examine how local success story Viper Innovations created an Innovation Value Chain and put it at the core of their organisation. The result enabled them to successfully pivot their business to enter and embed themselves into new horizontal markets.
By the end of the session, you will be able to re-examine and challenge traditional attitudes to innovation and gain some insight into how to future-proof your organisation against the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) future that we all face.
